The main goal of the psycho package is to provide tools for psychologists, neuropsychologists and neuroscientists, to facilitate and speed up the time spent on data analysis. It aims at supporting best practices by providing tools to format the output of statistical methods to directly paste them into a manuscript, ensuring standardization of statistical reporting.
